Half-canvassed, made by Corneliani.
The less lining in the jacket, the cooler it wears. Half lining in pants is particularly good for scratchy materials like tweed.
I have a 'this or that' question. Looking to buy either Yuketen's Kiltie Blucher or Angler Moc shoes. Which ones should I get?
-my apologies for the accidental duplicate posts
leather or canvas jack purcells
Really can't go wrong with either but I do love both the white and black leather JPs. Works with jeans or chinos.
Edit: Took it to the AE thread.
Getting married in July. Groomsmen are wearing Charcoal Suits, White shirts, white p square black shoes. bridesmaids are in 'hyper-purple' dresses. inbetween magenta and purple is best way to describe it.
Asheville, NC wedding @ 5pm - inside a fantastically old church.
What color grenadine tie? or shepherd's check?
Typical (affordable) Mall store for someone with athletic build (15" drop)? In particular looking for pants that fit/won't rip. 32" waist, 26.5" quads, 40" hips. Unfortunately I rip pants monthly it would appear even though they're baggy in the groin area, unfortunately they balloon up when I walk/sit and just look weird if I buy something to fit my legs/butt.
How is the fit of Polo Ralph Lauren shorts?
Anyone who knows?
Help a newbie shoe-polisher out: try as I may, my brown Wingtips end my polishing session with a matte and somewhat sticky finish. What is the cause of this? Is this normal for some shoes... have I bought a pair of 'matte' shoes that won't get shiny?
My technique is perfect for my other pairs of shoes: they all end up wonderfully smooth and shiny and look exactly as I hope. This one pair, though: nothing seems to help.
Am I missing something obvious? Is there something I can do to buff up 'matte' finish shoes?
(I don't really know how to describe the shoes any better than this, so my apologies. If I need to provide more information please ask me specific questions so I can provide you with suitable answers.)
You're probably better off asking this in the official shoe care thread.
Ah, thank you. I didn't see that thread so this looked like the most appropriate place. I'll post this on that thread now.
I recently got my first few pairs of proper leather dress shoes. Now I need to get some products to clean them and keep them in shape. What are some products I need to keep my shoes in good shape? Would it be fine to just grab some shoe cleaning products at Nord Rack or should I go to the AE store?
The hanger project online has Saphir renovateur and wax and cream polishes. These are thought to be some of the best products to use.
